Cupid's Liquid Arrows by moonbeamfairy16

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: What happens when Fred and George test a love potion on Harry, Ron, and Hermione? Trouble happens of course!
Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 05/16/06 Title: Chapter 1: Butterbeer

This is really good so far, and really funny. I like that despite it is humour fic everyone is still in character. It doesn't seem that you really talked about Fred and George enough though.

"Harry stepped in from of Ron and embraced Hermione" (it should be front)

"It’s been rough, but I’m alright. How about you? I see you have a tan,” Harry said and held her at arm’s length.

“Yes, we vacationed in Cancun. And, if you need to talk, I’m here,” Hermione responded."
This quote seems very rushed to me. Shouldn't there more of a transition? He's sad and then a second later he's hitting on Hermione. Maybe they should be sad for two lines and then happy for two lines?

I noticed that Ron got a new room. That's pretty cool. Is it just because he's growing up? Next to that line 'one' needs to be capatalized.

Just some little things, but over all I love it.

Author's Response: thanks for the help! typos will get the end of me. lol. what is spell check for if it doesn\'t catch that? lol. the transition? yeah, i noticed that too, but i\'m not sure WHAT would make the transition, you know? any ideas? yes ron got a new room. for a few reasons: i couldn\'t remember what it looked like before and didn\'t want to go looking for it. and yes, because he\'s growing up. lol. thanks for the very helpful review!!!

Staring at The Wall by ProfPosky

This is amazing! You are so creative. At first I was like, wow this is going to be all about looking at a wall, but it was really interesting. It made me just want to keep reading. That was really cool, and slightly bizarre. Good work.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! It never occured to me that this title could be off-putting. Hmmm, maybe I have to think about renaming it. I\'m so happy to have produced something you found \"really cool, and slightly bizarre.\" Thanks again for letting me know how it worked for you!

The Power of the Quill by Connor Landon

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: "Charlotte-Flower" has been writing to her mysterious ‘quill pal' for over a year, but she really doesn't know him at all. When he suggests that they meet, she has mixed feelings. Would they like each other? Hate one another? But the most important question: Who is he?
Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 05/02/06 Title: Chapter 1: The Power of the Quill

That was so good! It enthralled me from the start and I couldn't stop reading! I can't wait to read other stories by you.

Author's Response: Thank you! This was kind of like a burst of inspiration when I was stuck with a chapter in my other fic \"Life\'s An Hourglass\"--which I\'d love for you to check out if you have the time. I\'d be interested to read your feedback on what I have written so far. Thanks again for reviewing! They truly make my day!

One Sharp Tongue Deserves Another by immortal_evil

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: One sharp tongue deserves another. Minerva had discovered that rule. If any words resulted in a smart smack, the punishment was uncalled for. Minerva did, in fact, receive some uncalled for punishments occasionally, but she had forgotten them. Small things were not meant to linger over. This man was no exception.

Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 05/02/06 Title: Chapter 1: Small Things

This is very good. It is very deep as well. I liked it a lot, I have always wanted to know Minerva's backstory. Would she really not love her father for doing this to her? She may be angry and dislike him, but it sounds like he raised her, and loves her. Great writing!

Author's Response:

Very deep? *blushes* Thank you! I\'d hoped it would be deep, but I doubted it would be.

Minerva does not love her father\'s changed personality, but loevd who he was before the day he considered arranging her a marriage. She forgives him at the end of the chapter.

Thank you for your review! I wish I could return the favor, but you don\'t have any stories currently posted. Please consider writing one.


Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 05/04/06 Title: None

This is really good. I liked all the dialouge in it. It made it interesting. Great work, I can't wait for another chapter. It is very informative.

Author's Response: Thanks. Yeah, I suppose it\'s not so bad in a prologue, but I\'ve actually rewritten the story from the first chapter, because it was really just 3000 words of dialogue. Boring and ridiculous, and didn\'t add anything to the story. Thanks for the praise though.

Having Loved and Lost by Slian Martreb

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: A novice reporter is off to interview two men instrumental in the last twenty years of Wizarding History. What she meets will amaze and enlighten. Post OoTP.
Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 05/04/06 Title: Chapter 1: Having Loved and Lost- The Article

Wow. That just blew me away. It was amazing, very well written and deep. When Lupin went into the Forbidden Forest, he said he didn't eat anything, was that just reporter making stuff up? I loved it.

Author's Response: So glad you enjoyed it!

Sorting Hat's Decision by Drea

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: What happened on that fateful night that Hermione Granger was Sorted into Gryffindor? One-shot.
Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 06/09/06 Title: Chapter 1: Sorting Hat's Decision

I liked this a lot. I am actually very interested in stuff that happened from a different point of view. It totally changes around the whole scene, well done

One thing I found odd was that she was not surprised at anything or fascinated. There is a difference between reading about it in a book and seeing the real thing.

When she immediately assumes Hagrid is half-giant, I don't think she would think it through that much. Yes, she is bright but it is her first day in the wizarding world so I think she would just assume that he was a giant and leave it at that.

"Hermione was eager to see the castle, having read about it in all the books she had brought from Diagon Alley" This works but it might sound better to say 'bought' from Diagon alley.

"Then she was shuffled through the door and in front of the whole school. She stopped for a second and looked up at the enchanted ceiling. It was a clear night out, and you could see every star imaginable. The sky actually looked larger on the ceiling than it did outside. She noticed a shooting star streak through the sky. She decided to make a wish silently. I wish to be Sorted into a good house, she thought.

“It’s bewitched to look like the sky outside. I read it in Hogwarts: A History,” she said absently to no one in particular, even though the red-haired boy looked at her like she was mental." Within these two paragraphs, you used 'mental' twice. Maybe change one of them to a synonym.

When she talks about not transfiguring large objects until the sixth year, wouldn't she just say later on? She wouldn't know the exact syllabus of all her years yet.

"Then McGonagall moved out of her line of vision, then Hermione saw it" Try 'When' instead of the first 'Then' and just delete the second then. There are too many thens in that whole paragraph.

"Then the hat started to jerk, and a rip formed into the in brim." What is an 'in' brim? Also I think you should call the sorting hat an it rather than a he.

During the song, since that is the same as canon, why don't you try to add Hermione's thought inbetween lines. It would add interest to all of us who have read these lines over and over again.

"Finally, Seamus Finnigan was Sorted into Gryffindor" Sorted does not need to be capitalized.

The part about the Band-Aid I loved. It was very Hermione-ish.

"[You] never backed down or cower into the corner.” That might sound better as 'cowered before her' or something.

"Your great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandmother was in Gryffindor. " It should be 'was'.

"They had Muggle children, that is why you aren't a pureblood" This makes it sound like she is half-blood or something. She is not even close. Maybe you could say 'that is why your line did not know of its magical powers (or vestiges)'

Even though I had all these comments, over all I really did like it and I think you did a great job with Hermione's character.

Mary Sue, I love you! by Kerichi

Rated: 6th-7th Years •

Once upon a time in the far, far, away land of California, Miranda Aramintha Rowena Ysabella Slyvia Ursula Evangelista- Mary Sue, for short- accepted an invitation to Hogwarts. As she searches for her one true love, will her soul mate be Draco? Harry? Snape? Colin? Fred and George? or...gasp...Voldemort?

Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill for Best Humour Fiction.

Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 06/03/06 Title: Chapter 1: Mary Sue, I love you!

This was amazing and hysterically funny. I have read so many fics like this before and this pretty much summed them all up. I know this is for teaching purposes, but the Voldemort part really got on my nerves. (Maybe that was the point.) Anyways, you really got the point across in this fic.

Author's Response: Thank you! I just wanted to be entertaining, out-Sue the one that got on my nerves, but I do think the HP Mary Sue Litmus test should be required reading in fan fiction guidelines, heh. Sadly, honesty is required to get a true score in those quizzes, and writers who self-insert aren\'t seeing their characters objectively, are they? LOL.

Cliché Nation by just_the_contrary

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: A compilation of the most commonly used Harry Potter clichés in the fandom. Features Angsty!Harry, Sweet!Draco, Head Dorms, sudden romances in the forms of Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginny and of course, Draco/Hermione, because what's a cliché without them?

The Marauders also make an appearance in this fic, including Lily/Lily's best friend/Lily's other best friend.

Warning: mention of hippopotamuses inside.

Chapter Five is up! The story is done. Also, thank you to everyone who nominated this neatly tied bundle of ridiculousness in the QQ awards, I really appreciate it!
Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 06/04/06 Title: Chapter 1: A Collection of All-Sorts

That is hysterically funny and I think I recognized all the cliches. Nice work. They should use this in the beta forum as what not to do when writing a serious fic. As a humour fic though, it is great.

Author's Response: Oh thank you! I\'d love to be used as an anti-example. Hehehe.

Beautiful by fairies_r_real

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Ever wondered what goes on in Luna Lovegood's head? (Scary place, I know!)

She's noticed that everybody else is falling in and out of love . . . but she's not. And she wants to know why.

This is a subject that I think a lot of people have.

Listen to "Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera whilst reading this story.

With many many thanks to my beta reader KD the Ravenclaw.
Read and enjoy!!!

Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 06/18/06 Title: Chapter 1: Beautiful

This was really good. You really got inside of Luna's head. Luna is one of my favorite characters because of all her hidden depth. I think that your characterization is really good. I would have liked a little more plot to set it off, but we can always have a sequel! :) I really liked it.

"And so what if I wear Butterbeer cork necklaces and turnips for earrings..." That whole paragraph, I can't place it but something about that... I always got the impression that she knew she was odd, but did she know exactly what was odd about her? In OotP when Luna steps up to Harry and announces that she believes him, Parvarti and Lavender laugh at hes earrings yet she thinks they're laughing at what she said. This always gave me the impression that she did not know exactly what made her so odd.

"Who wants to be just like everybody else? Not me." I love this part. It encompasses her whole personality and a lot of other people's on this site. For the people still in school and the adults writing fanfiction might not be the coolest thing to do, but we still do it because it is what we love to do.

"I mean, I’m average height, pretty average looking, an average intelligence . . . an average sort of person all round, I suppose. " A few paragraphs up didn't she say she wanted to be different from others...and she is, I don't think anything is average about her although this could be insecurities like most girls.

Author's Response: Thanks for your review!!! It\'s great to hear advice from fellow writers. I couldn\'t really put too much of a plot to it; it was supposed to be just a first person dramatic monologue (ooh, I\'ve been listening in English!). I don\'t know, maybe it was just the realization that no boys liked her that made her realise that she was odd . . . I don\'t know . . . I wanted to get across the message that, not only was everyone beautiful, but Luna was just like everybody else, even if she is a little bit . . . strange. But thank you for your advice. There are always improvements to be made on everything!!! x x x long live the fairies x x x

Mary Sue, Marauders love you! by Kerichi

You pulled off another great work of humour. It was fantastic.

A Song for Johnny by Fantasium

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: It is London in the late 1920s, and the Muggle influence on the magical society has never been so strong. The older generations, especially of the pure-blood families, disapprove, but their children are becoming increasingly curious and open-minded. Join one of these young men as he attempts to introduce his mother to the pleasures of Muggle culture, and as he discovers the full extent of them himself.

This was a fantastic story. I have to admit, the entire time I was searching the hp-lexicon for this so called John Weasley. When I couldn't find him it just drew my interest more and more. This really was lovely and I liked the personality connections to Arthur.
